Narcotic Metabolism: Crystal Seth’s body consumes and processes amphetamines and substituted amphetamines to power his superhuman abilities. Seth’s physiology becomes more superhuman in direct proportion to the amount of narcotics he’s consumed and metabolized, and as he ‘comes down’, his powers begin to fade. He does not have a recorded upper limit to his abilities, limited only by drug availability and consumption rate. He has also shown himself to be immune to overdose.

Junkie: Seth is still a drug addict, and still feels the effects of the drugs he consumes to get his powers. Although immune to overdose, he is not immune to any of the other effects of amphetamines.
Seth Edelen was an average meth head until his Metahuman powers kicked in during an OD. His metabolism altered, consuming narcotics and processing them into superhuman abilities.
Calling himself Crystal Seth, he began a career as a for-hire supervillain to feed his meth habit.
He is one of several supervillains who were hired by a mysterious patron who turned out to be Der Gute Doktor. Crystal Seth participated in a string of robberies targeting museums and government facilities before the hired team was confronted by The B-Team.
